The Victoriaville FIMAV festival has just announced two world premieres for
its 25th edition (May 15-19, 2008). And these are both HUGE.
ART BEARS!!! W/ Chris Cutler, Fred Frith, Julia Eisenberg (of Charming
Hostess fame), Carla Kihlstedt, Zeena Parkins, and Kristin Slipp. The
project is called Songbook and, yep, Dagmar Krause declined the offer to
The second one is very special, the first time in 25 years that JOHN ZORN
will be presenting a world premiere in Victoriaville: THE DREAMERS, w/ Cyro
Baptista, Joey Baron, Trevor Dunn, Marc Ribot, Jamie Saft, Kenny Wollesen &
Zorn. Zorn describes this new project as a follow-up to The Gift. An album
by this line-up is to be released this winter on Tzadik.
So there you go, two HUGE concerts already announced for the 25th FIMAV.
We're particularly proud of these two, but there's a lot to be proud of
still to be announced. :-)
